Project Gigabit’s open market review

The government is on a mission to deliver lightning-fast, reliable broadband to everyone in the UK and is investing £5 billion in Project Gigabit to ensure that hard-to-reach communities are not left out.

Building Digital UK (BDUK) is carrying out an Open Market Review (OMR) in five areas including Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire and East of Berkshire (Lot 26) to help identify premises that may be suitable for future public funding for gigabit-capable broadband.

BDUK is seeking information and supporting evidence from suppliers – in relation to the presence of gigabit capable broadband infrastructure within the project areas. If you have existing network coverage or plan to build infrastructure within the next three years, we actively encourage you to respond to this OMR.

This consultation closes on 13th September 2021. To respond to this Open Market Review, and for more information, please see BDUK’s page at: www.gov.uk/government/publications/project-gigabit-open-market-review-request-for-information-first-release-of-phase-2
